Bryce Harper rejects 10-year, $300M offer from Nationals

Dallas Keuchel Patrick Corbin

But people familiar with the offer also indicate that it is now off the table, an offer meant to capitalise on the Nationals' exclusive negotiating rights with Harper that stood for five weeks until he officially became a free agent.

The Yankees are certainly known for making big splashes in the free agent market, so they've always been tentatively mentioned as a possible destination for Harper if he does decide to leave Washington DC.

The Nationals offered Harper a new deal on the last day of the final homestand in September, but Harper's camp rejected it.

While Harper could be exploring other options, it's still possible he might return to the Nationals.

"It's definitely insane walking in today and knowing this could be my last game at Nats Park in my white jersey ..." "But Bryce has told me he wanted to tell you personally, so I'm gonna let him do that". It's fair to wonder if the Nationals didn't want to make their best offer off-the-bat, though Harper rejecting such a deal is a good indication that the Scott Boras client plans to sign with highest bidder this offseason, something Boras clients tend to do.

Harper headlines one of the most valuable free-agent classes in Major League Baseball history, which also includes infielder Manny Machado, closer Craig Kimbrel and former Cy Young Award victor Dallas Keuchel. Teams do make token offers now and then, to save face or push the price up for rivals.

"We didn't get anything done, but he's a guy that is near and dear to us and we're not closing any doors", Rizzo said.

Boras said he defines "generational player" as: 1. He did start in a home All-Star Game at Nationals Park, but Harper hit just.214 in the first-half of the 2018 season.

Based in part on wire and service reports.

"I'm comfortable with the alternative [to signing Harper]", Rizzo said.
